No two skeins are identical and color variations will occur between skeins within the same colorway and same dye lot. The yarn was dyed in small batches; quantities are very limited. Please make sure to order enough yarn to complete your project.
Due to the natural dyes, you may experience some color transfer or bleeding with this yarn. Hands, wooden needles, and light colored yarn or fabric may be affected. We recommend pre-washing your yarn before use:
Fill your sink, bathtub, or a large bowl with lukewarm water. Slowly submerge your yarn and move it gently through the water- be careful not to wring or agitate the fibers, as this can cause the yarn to felt. Remove the skein and gently squeeze out any excess water. Repeat as necessary, always using clean water, until the remaining water is clear. Allow your yarn to air-dry completely before using.
Yarn made in Italy, dyed in the USA using natural materials.
Care: Dry clean or hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
